Prosecutors say the man accused of killing his girlfriend inside her suburban Philadelphia nail salon had stolen thousands of dollars from her bank account in the days preceding her death.

The Bucks County Courier Times reports prosecutors played voicemail messages for jurors Thursday during the trial of Thuy Van Vo. He is charged with strangling An-Hnan "Annie" Thi Huynh in November 2010 in an Upper Southampton nail salon.

According to the Courier Times report, prosecutors say Vo apologizes in one message because he took $6,500 from one of Huynh's bank accounts.

Prosecutors alleged Vo killed Huynh in part because of the money and out of jealousy because he thought she was seeing someone else.

Vo has denied killing Huynh. He faces a life sentence if convicted of first-degree murder.
